Like somehow you seem drawn to a specific area, like a town, a state, or a country?

Admittedly. I've been really drawn to Mississippi. That's why I talk about it a lot.

When I first went there, it felt "right", and I don't understand why. I was even looking into the state before I ever went there. It felt right.

For some reason I have a thing for Colorado. Then, when I actually went there and visited Mesa Verde, I had the strangest physical reaction upon entering one of the rooms on top of a deja vu.

I've always had a longing for the mountains. I've lived near them and on them, off and on for the last 25 years and when we go from flat land to a mountain, it feels so good. When I have to drive -up- a winding road to get home, there is something that just feels so right and so good about it. I'm never 'quite right' unless I'm above 1,200 feet.

Yes and if a place calls you --- just go.

You may never be able to go home again, your home will be the new place. Mountains and big open sky and very mild weather did it for me.

Halifax, NS. I spent a few days there on vacation in the late 90s, and felt an odd sense of belonging, that I was meant to be there. But I had been planning on visiting the Maritime Provinces for years, so it may have been related to my expectations for the trip. It's certainly not the kind of climate and place I dream about moving to.

The weirdest thing about the visit was, I was walking around downtown and ran into a guy I worked with. Neither of us had any idea the other would be there, and it's not exactly an everyday vacation destination.

Yes, and conversely weaker in others.

I remember the first time I visited Connecticut I had the distinct feeling that I had finally come home. And after each visit, returning to S. California became almost unbearable. In fact, the last time I visited I prolonged my visit to the extent that I compromised my job in California.

I subsequently discovered, in 2008, that my 9th great-grandfather was among the first of 40 or so settlers to be granted acreage in, and around the ancient town of Norwich, CT. I've been able to find, and validate the location where my 9th great-grandfather settled in, or around 1655, off of Town Street in Norwich CT, a place that I visited once, and would like to revisit one day. The Lathrop B&B stands on the property that was once my 9th great-grandfather's property in the 17th century.

I have done some exhaustive genealogical research in order to corroborate this data that only became available to me when my grandmother died. The information I've been able to retrieve is absolutely uncanny and when I think of it I get the most eerie feeling.

The northwestern part of CT is most inviting. It has a soft beauty that almost whispered to me. Even what they consider to be slums of Norwich I find to be appealing.

Is there any particular place in Mississippi that you gravitate to?

I know I've said this before, but don't let this forthcoming opportunity escape you. Don't make the same mistake that I did and pass up a chance to work in the place that you love because of family.

It wasn't Vicksburg. But it still felt like it was somewhere in the state.
